“We plan to introduce this field to 10 thousand young people in 5 years”

Speaking at the award ceremony, Finance Office President Prof. Göksel Aşan pointed out the lack of trained human resources in the field of participation finance and made evaluations. President Mr. Aşan said, “We have seen that there is a problem in the number of people willing to work in the field of Participation Finance. Because this area is not known and promoted enough. We need to increase the number of people who intend to work in the field of participation finance. We plan to introduce this field to 10 thousand young people in 5 years and to encourage them to work in this field. If even 500 of our 10 thousand young people decide to work in this field, it will be an important human resource for the sector”.
